Discover boutique hotels in Bawah Island, Indonesia

Cast adrift within three azure-blue lagoons, Bawah Island is made up of six paradise islands boasting 13 white-sand beaches and an expanse of untouched hinterland – and all for just 70 explorers at once. These ever-sunny isles are primed for both adventurous and leisurely travelers; take it slow on the shoreline, or dive into the coral-rich waters to explore the protected marine life. The jungle also has its fair share of wondrous wildlife to discover while hiking the winding trails.

When to go

Located just two degrees north of the equator, Bawah Island tends to have a fairly even climate all year round. The island gets half the rainfall of mainland Indonesia, but if you want to almost guarantee yourself a dry stay, visit between May and September.

Getting there

  • Planes

    The closest airport is Singapore’s Changi Airport: once you've landed, you'll be met by a representative from the hotel who will take you to a port where you’ll board a 30-minute ferry to Batam Centre. From there, you’ll catch the hotel’s seaplane for an 80-minute flight to the island. Our Smith24 team can find the best route to Singapore and book your flights.
  • Boats

    Should you happen to be sailing through the Anambas islands, you moor your boat in one of the three lagoons for US$5 a foot net a night (this is entirely dedicated to fund the Bawah Conservation Foundation). Permission to enter Bawah's lagoons must be obtained two weeks prior to arrival. Bawah is a protected marine area in which anchoring, fishing and the collection of any dead or live coral and shells are strictly prohibited.
  • Automobiles

    There aren’t really any car-worthy roads on Bawah Island, so leave your wheels at home.
